Continuing on from Resolutions 2013 – #1 was planning ahead but this ties in several other categories as well (I could repeat them all but that would be… well… repetitive – needless to say, many are covered).
Anyway. This meant that I spent New Year’s Eve reorganising my Queue on Ravelry. I know, the excitement but A. I’m not one for NYE normally, and B. I was ill. Which meant I was tucked up in bed early. So organising knitting patterns and stash while Flash Gordon was about as exciting as it was going to get.
Irrespective of these facts, I found it extremely useful to evaluate exactly what I had; in terms of stash, pre-bought / free patterns and design ideas.
The result, a neatly organised (and colour coded) pile of A4 paper detailing stash and appropriate patterns or design ideas. Those with patterns have all been queued on Ravelry which should make things easier when working out what I have got left in the stash without possible knitting patterns. Those yarns for my own designs have been listed in the handwritten notes – which at this moment in time are somewhere in my sofa fort (I’ll find them later – and store them somewhere safer).
Some patterns I’ll need to buy, some projects will need additional yarn bought, some will handspun yarn spun specifically to the weight / yardage required. The plan is there. There is no way it all be done in 2013, or 2014 for that matter (or beyond that to be honest). At least I have the right intention.
I’ll post more on the 2013 plotting later… mainly concerning one newly published volume of knitting patterns and a pile of handspun…
